Splish Splash Dash

06 November 2008

This is one of our favorite parts of the day so we wanted to share it with all of you. Dash LOVES the water, he's not afraid at all. He loves splashing around and kicking his legs and getting all nice and clean! He usually passes out for a long nap after his bath.

We had his 2 month check up today and on our way we passed a cute building that said Safe Splash so we stopped by to check it out and it's a private swim lesson facility with 2 salt water pools. They start lessons with babies that are 6 months so we're definitely going to take him in March to learn how to do the backstroke and maybe the butterfly. He'll be our little baby Michael Phelps...

Anyway, let's get to the pictures...

And after all the bath-time fun, there's always what Jake calls "The After-Bath".. a.k.a. nap time.

Happy Halloween!

Dash's Grandpa Lewis is always sending him packages in the mail. A couple weeks ago he sent some cute Halloween outfits! Dash had a great first Halloween helping Daddy hand out candy to all the kids in the neighborhood.

Our little pumpkin.

Thanks for the cute outfit Grandpa!

Afternoon nap.

I think he was starting to get fed up with all the photos : )

My favorite! Oh he's so cute!!

FHE Pumpkins!

28 October 2008

For FHE tonight I made pumpkin cheesecake and we carved up some fancy shmancy pumpkins. We challenged everyone in our families to enter our first annual Lewis/Reni pumpkin carving contest.. here's our entries.

Jake getting gutsy with his pumpkin.

My first pumpkin cheesecake, sooooo good!

This was a hospital visit waiting to happen.

Apparently we were too boring for Dash & Ella, they both slept right thru FHE. Party poopers.

Ooohhh... ahhhh.

Sweet Pea

26 October 2008

Last night was our ward trunk or treat and we brought along our little sweet pea in a pod.

Cutest Little Pumpkin

On Friday we went to the Littleton Historical Museum to pick out a pumpkin.. It's located on a 39 acre farm and it's apparently one of the top 10 historical museums in the country. Jake carried Dash around in his sling most of the time but he did come out for a minute to see the pumpkin patch.

Our Little Republican

Jake, Dash and I have spent the past couple weeks going door-to-door for the Colorado Republican party signing people up for mail-in ballots. Dash has been especially cooperative in the cold weather because he knows how important it is to vote! Here he is gearing up for another cold day knocking doors, what a trooper!

Natural Disaster Hits Colorado

There was some sort of natural disaster that shook our home here in Colorado today. The aftershocks were so strong we knew it must have been some sort of natural gas explosion. We did some investigating and questioned several suspects.

This one in particular seemed awfully suspicious..

But after following the undeniable odor permeating the air we were led to the source of this heinous disaster..

After one serious bath and a change of clothes we questioned the suspect but he had only one thing to say..

Ella's new favorite thing is letting Dash sleep on her while Jake and I get ready. We keep a close eye on them but so far they seem to love the attention they get from each other.. we're so happy they like each other so we don't have to give one or the other away : )

Just over a year ago..

29 September 2008

Even though this blog is dedicated to all things Dash, we wanted to share our wedding photos with family & friends who never got to see them! Hard to believe this was just over a year ago : ) http://www.jakeandwendy.com

Dashy & Ella's first snuggle

Dash is 3 weeks old now and just getting cuter every day.. here's some photos from the last week.

Just hanging out on the couch..

With his Daddy after his first day at church

Sleeping like a baby

With his mommy

He discovered his thumb! How do they just know how to do that?

A couple of days ago I was getting ready in my room and Dash was laying on my bed. I let our dog Ella come upstairs for the first time since we brought Dash home just to give her some much needed attention. Dash started getting fussy and I watched as Ella climbed gently on the bed and layed her head on his tummy until they both fell asleep. It was the cutest thing so I had to snap this photo on my cell phone.
